My Best Friend’s Wedding

October has been a rough month for me in RL. I’ve been sick with a sinus infection, we had some more health issues with our beloved pup, my husband hurt his foot and my RL sister is dealing with some sort of health problem that as yet is undiagnosed but has produced some scary symptoms. I took a bit of an unintentional blogging break as a result and poured myself into my personal sim. Decorating relaxes me for some reason. But our dog is doing as well as he’s been since all of his health stuff began in late August (I’m almost afraid to even type this, but currently this is the longest we’ve gone between vet visits since all of this began on August 22nd) and so, October is ending on a high note. Plus, last night in SL I was the maid of honor in one of my best friend’s wedding!

Miraculously, both Rosa and I were ready long before the start of the wedding so I had a chance to snap a few pics of us together. I figured it was a good chance to blog us together, which I’ve been wanting to do for ages anyway.

Rosa was a beautiful bride! She’s wearing LAQ’s Ana bento mesh head and a Junbug gown.

My friend, the Bride

I returned to my redheaded ways thanks to an Exile updo, and I chose a LeLutka head for the wedding. I didn’t want to be too matchy… I wanted the bride to have the chance to stand out! My gown is a new release from Just Because that I adore.
My gorgeous Gleam eyes are from Buzzeri and you can win them from their gacha at The Epiphany through November 1th. Each win includes a ticket you can exchange for a copy version of OMEGA appliers, which is an option I really like. Each eye color also has two versions.

Friendship

My sim, In Omnia Paratus, is currently open to the public through November 11th! I hope you’ll come visit and take pics. There’s a haunted house, a pumpkin patch and plenty of cozy fall nooks. If you do, please share your pics in my flickr group! It’s my hope to open it again in December.

Coming soon to a Fair(e) near you!

There are two events opening this weekend. One is Hair Fair, which celebrates it’s 10th AMAZING year of raising money for Wigs For Kids, with every transaction donating all or part of the proceeds (signs will tell you how much) to this fabulous charity. Ten years, guys. How incredibly awesome is that ? Hair Fair opens July 11th at 12 am SLT (give or take a few minutes). If you are anxious to demo without lag, or just get a head start on making your wish list, you can join the demo group to save all the demo goodness! I highly recommend that, as it helps speed things along and it’s just fun! It’s a great way to discover new stores, too.

Copy and paste the following into local chat and click the link to join the demo group: secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about

You can find out more about Hair Fair, and get maps and slurls (once open) on the Hair Fair blog.

To learn more about Wigs For Kids, visit their website. Also, while at Hair Fair 2015, be sure to grab one of the amazing bandanas created for Bandana Day. Bandana Day is July 26th (also the final day of Hair Fair 2015), and for this day we honor the courage and strength of kids (and adults) fighting conditions that result in hair loss by donning a bandana. Bandana Day bandanas are created by SL residents and 100% of the proceeds go to Wigs For Kids. There are a lot of amazing, creative options (I can’t wait to show you the one I picked!), and they’re only L$50 a piece and for a great cause.

I am wearing one of Exile’s Hair Fair releases and my fellow blogger is wearing one of Elikatira’s. We’re also both wearing necklaces by Cae that will be available starting July 12th at this year’s Wizarding Faire. This event was one of my favorites ever when it debuted in 2013, so I’m truly thrilled it’s coming back. In fact, it inspired me to start reading the books again! And we’re both wearing outfits you can find at the current Rustic themed edition of Uber.

Summer Friends

It’s going to be a jam-packed weekend of awesome with both of these amazing events opening, so be sure you don’t miss out!

If Cersei were a redhead…

I was inspired by this Tableau Vivant hair for We ❤ Role-Play's 3rd birthday bash (happy birthday!), and it seemed like a perfect fit for Cae’s beautiful new Baroque cross available at Fit For A Princess and Junbug’s gorgeous gown that’s at The Countdown Room! To pull it all together, I found a new RP sim called Era of Conquest where they have done stunning build based on King’s Landing. I was very pleasantly greeted and assured that it was fine for me to take a photo there! If you’re into Game Of Thrones and SL roleplay definitely check it out!

I am also wearing PXL’s newly updated Sweet Lips mouth. There’s an open option as well, which I am sure I’ll play with in a future post. But I thought this sulky, pouty closed mouth was perfect for this look. I’ve never worn a mesh mouth before, and to be completely honest I’ve never liked one enough to wear one before… but the updated Sweet Lips shape is really, really pretty, as you can see for yourself.

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

Sassenach

The September round of We ❤ Role-Play is underway, and I am really late in blogging my first post for it thanks to bronchitis in RL. I’m starting to feel better and I just couldn’t wait to show you this incredible Sassenach dress from Junbug, available at this round of We ❤ Role-Play. This gown comes in one color… a lovely, autumnal brown with a green corset inset. But, there's an add-on hud sold separately (for 50% off during We ❤ RP!) that gives you multiple color options and allows you to individually color the skirt, bodice, corset and even the inner cuffs. There are so many possibilities, and it's a truly stunning gown. I chose Tableau Vivant's new Upshaw updo, available at Collabor88 with this gown. This hair has three different versions of bangs available, and I’m wearing the long bangs version here.

Ready for the ball

Also at We ❤ Role-Play, from Keystone, is this gorgeous Fae'Leth headpiece. Again, I'm breaking my "I don't wear/like gold" rules, but I just loved this piece and I thought it looked awesome with Junbug's dress. I'm also wearing Perle, just one of five new Cae releases available at Jewelry Fair 2014. I love how delicate and elegant this set is. My skin is another makeup from Belleza’s new Emily, which is, of course, available at current round of The Arcade.

Fantastical Adventures

If you enjoy role play or fantasy in SL, there are multiple events going on right now that you should definitely not miss! First, I want to point out Fantasy Faire because this RFL event is for a great cause (to raise money for cancer research), and it ends on Sunday! There are a LOT of sims to this event, but fortunately the organizers have created a great page on their website that will help make navigation a bit easier.

The dress I am wearing in the picture below is from Luminary. This is the RFL donation color, and the dress is named Annette. Augurer of Luminary wrote “Why I Relay” notecards and put them in each demo box. Each outfit she did has the name of someone close to her, someone who has battled cancer. These personal stories really tugged at my heart, and the dress I’m wearing was named in honor of her cousin who has twice beaten breast cancer. I think this story resonated with me because in the past three years my grandmother’s beaten not one, but two separate types of breast cancer (and also a third cancer, a rare form of lung cancer). I plan to share why I relay soon, but in the meantime, please be sure to check out this fabulous event. Luminary is located on the Hopes Horizon sim.

The beautiful table set is Senza from Pixel Mode for The Garden’s Tuscan inspired edition, which ends on the 10th.

Sustenance

Also, from The Garden is this beautiful wine platter from Ispachi. I figured you can never have too much wine, fruit and cheese! The hair you see in both of these pics is from Calico for We ❤ Role-Play.

Wine & Cheese

The Fantasy Collective’s current round has a pirate theme. It’s a lot of fun, and it gave me an excuse to go buy this awesome dress from Junbug. You’ll find the hair from Tableau Vivant at the event, as well as the table and the grog and gold (which came from the O.M.E.N/Moi collaboration item). The food is from Ginger Line’s Farmers’ Snacks set, which is available at We ❤ Role-Play. It's We Love Role-Play's first birthday, and if you've not been to this event you're definitely missing out!
